Heart of Bucks and the Vice Lord-Lieutenant of Buckinghamshire are delighted to announce the creation of a new permanent fund, The Lieutenancy Fund, to support the work of the Lord-Lieutenant throughout our county.
Sir Henry Aubrey-Fletcher retired on the 27th November 2020. He has served with great dedication and energy since he succeeded Sir Nigel Mobbs as Lord-Lieutenant in 2006 and has been hugely popular and immeasurably important for the county and for Milton Keynes. This fund has been established to celebrate his legacy.
In these days of lockdowns and social distancing, it is hoped that all people and organisations wishing to show their gratitude for Sir Henry’s remarkable public service can now contribute to the fund.
An initial endowment of £10,000 has already been donated by members of the county’s Lieutenancy and Shrievalty, topped up by other significant gifts.
The Lieutenancy Fund will become an invaluable aid to the work of future Lord-Lieutenants within the county, enabling small grants to local charitable organisations and community groups. It will also create a lasting record of Sir Henry’s time in office. A donation to the fund is a fitting tribute to his outstanding contribution.
“Sir Henry has done so much for so many in the county and Milton Keynes. A donation to the new Lieutenancy Fund set up in his honour is a fitting way of giving thanks for all he has done”.
– The Countess Howe DL, Heart of Bucks Chairman, who succeeds Sir Henry as Lord-Lieutenant
“It has been a pleasure working with Sir Henry during his time as Lord-Lieutenant. I am delighted that his legacy of commitment and dedication to the county of Buckinghamshire will be marked through the creation of a fund that will no doubt make a great impact to local communities across Bucks and MK over the years and decades to come”.
– Henry Allmand Heart of Bucks CEO
